The firm: Since its founding in 1994, Unitalen has assumed its place as China’s preeminent, full-service, intellectual property law firm. Our staff, comprising of 700 attorneys, paralegals and law clerks, provides services to our firm’s clients from our branch offices in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Wenzhou, Jinjiang, Haikou, Qingdao, Shenzhen, Changsha, Baoding, Chengdu, Zhengzhou, Xi’an, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Changchun, Suzhou, Dongguan, HongKong, Xiamen, Shenyang and Dalian centrally coordinated by our Beijing headquarters.

With many years of practice in this arcane field of law, Unitalen has blossomed into one of China’s largest intellectual property law firms, offering a full battery of intellectual property (IP) and other technology services, including procuring, licensing and enforcing IP rights, providing guidance to avoid infringement of existing third-party IP rights. Unitalen has extensive experience in the preparation of patent, trademark and copyright applications. This is amply demonstrated by the sheer volume of our activity in these areas: we file annually more than 10,000 new patent applications and new trademark applications with the Patent and Trademark Offices of the State Intellectual Property Office of the PRC. We further file a significant number of foreign patent applications and trademark registrations every year as well. We are also active in fields ancillary to IP, such as broadcasting, entertainment and sports law. We vigorously represent the interests of our clients before regulatory and administrative agencies and courts.

Unitalen is also proud to offer services which protect and promote our clients’ interests by safeguarding trade secrets and know-how. We do this by devising individually targeted strategies for optimizing internal corporate security and human resources management. We have a wealth of experience in technology transfer and non-disclosure and non-competition agreements, which we deploy to maximize the integrity and security of transmission of sensitive information. We further offer our clients counseling regarding trade secrets. Grappling with the thorny issues surrounding the formation and funding of technology enterprises and their interrelationships with venture capital is a mainstay of our practice.
